Building an image similarity engine

If you made it this far through the chapter, you're now in for a treat. We will harness the power of the greatest advances in artificial intelligence to do something truly important. We will find your spirit animal. Well, not exactly. We will use it to find the cat you most look like in the CIFAR-10 image dataset. The Cifa-whut? The CIFAR-10 dataset is a set of images used as a standard in computer vision research. It includes tens of thousands of images in 10 classes, things such as dogs and frogs and airplanes and automobiles. Most importantly for us, however, this includes cats.

Now, one thing to understand about deep learning is that of all the algorithms that we discussed, it tends to be the most powerful, ...
